North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has reportedly rounded up ‘hundreds’ of people connected to his uncle Jang Song-Thaek, the former second in command whom he recently executed.

The claims have been published in a variety of newspapers including the Daily Mail, which reported that hundreds of people were taken away by military police from the Pyongchong area of the capital Pyongyang.

The source said both close and distant relations of Jang Song-Thaek had been taken away, including relatives connected to his father.

Song-Thaek was executed on December 12 after being labelled a traitor on state television and denounced by the leader as being “worse than a dog”.

The statement read out on television stated Jong-Un’s uncle “committed such hideous crime as attempting to overthrow the state by all sorts of intrigues and despicable methods with a wild ambition to grab the supreme power of our party and state.”
The news of the roundup comes as former pro basketballer Dennis Rodman is in North Korea on a visit, ostensibly to train local basketballers.

Rodman said he has not spoken to the leader on this current trip and has resisted saying anything of a political nature.

“You know, a lot of people want me to come over here and do some special things, but that’s not my problem,” Rodman said.

“I can’t deal with that, I’m not, I’m not an ambassador.”
